    • The first thing anyone notices about Maddy is her broad grin—since she is almost always smiling—complete with teeth just slightly too large for her petite mouth. The second is her hair; unless Nanny has gotten her to sit still long enough to brush it out, she often lets it run wild (however unbecoming) and wild, for her, is brown ringlets. When properly seen to, it falls long enough to graze her rump, but Nanny won’t let her leave it long if they’re going out and about.

      In terms of size, she’s what you would expect of a girl her age. Her slim build can’t even imagine the curves of a woman yet, and she tops out at four feet in height. She tends to be well dressed and well kept, unless she’s just been flying (or as much so as a child can), in which case you’re fortunate if she’s not covered in mud with sticks in her hair. She has large brown eyes and long, dark lashes, and a soft soprano voice. She is right-handed.
    • 1876 | She was born and her mother died. It’s not the easiest thing for a child to understand, but starting her life with that very truth made death a much more tangible concept for her over the years. From the start she was a quiet baby, but prone to smiles, and she quickly became the apple of her father’s eye.

      1877 | Cousin --- is born. Being about a year old, Maddy has no thoughts or feelings on the matter; she can’t even recall if she noticed!

      1880 | For the first time in her life, Maddy is sad for more than a few minutes at a time. With no mother of her own, Auntie Rowena became her leading female role model, only to be taken away in childbirth as Helga had been four years earlier. Decidedly quite miserable, she declares that she will never come out of her room again. This lasts but two days, but is close enough to ‘forever’ to the four year old to be satisfied she kept to her word. Aunt – is more successful in childbirth, giving Maddy another living cousin.

      1881 | No sooner has Madeline performed her first act of magic—rewarded with the bunny she had always wanted, dubbed Elliot—than her father has her on a broomstick. Of course, he’s not deranged—it’s set to not go particularly high. Still, she proves to be quite a natural at it (or would have if her sense of balance was a bit better), and her father’s glee at seeing her fly makes her enjoy the experience very much indeed.

      1882 | After Cygnus sets their house on fire, Alycone moves to Hogmseade. While they can still see one another, Maddy is not wholly pleased by this development. She decides to fill the void with a stepmother, and begins keeping her eyes peeled for worthwhile candidates. She supposes Alcyone herself is not an option.

      1883 | Papa takes employment at Hogwarts. Maddy is not at all happy to see him go, but does not put up much of a fuss, as she can never stay mad at him particularly long.

      1884 | Maddy gains another cousin and finally loses her first tooth.

      Details coming eventually, yo!
